ACTION: Final rule. A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation on the waters of the Manatee River in Bradenton, Florida, during the Bradenton Area Riverwalk Regatta. The event is scheduled to take place annually from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the first Saturday of February. The special local regulation is necessary to protect the safety of race participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public on the navigable waters of the United States during the event. The special local regulation will restrict vessel traffic in the waters of the Manatee River in the vicinity of Bradenton, Florida. It will establish the following two areas: Enforcement areas #1 and #2, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high speed The Coast Guard is establishing this Special Local Regulation on the waters of the Gulf of Mexico in the vicinity of Manatee River, Florida during the Bradenton Riverwalk Regatta. On November 26, 2014, the Coast Guard published a notice proposing this final rule. No comments were received. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register because immediate action is needed to minimize potential danger to the public during this event and the rule will have minimal impact on the public and waterway users. The comment period on this rule ended on December 26, 2014 and the Coast Guard did not have restoration appeals, the Board will not consider matters described at 5 U.S.C. 7701(c)(2) in an appeal covered by this section. (e) Notice of jurisdictional, timeliness, and merits elements. The administrative judge will provide notice to the parties of the specific jurisdictional, timeliness, and merits elements that apply in a particular appeal. (f) Additional information. For additional information on IRA appeals, the reader should consult 5 CFR part 1209. For additional information on VEOA appeals, the reader should consult 5 CFR part 1208, subparts A & C. For additional information on USERRA appeals, the reader should consult 5 CFR part 1208, subparts A and B.

This event has been well publicized by the City of Bradenton and local media outlets. Any delay in the effective date of this rule would be contrary to the public interest because this rule is needed to minimize potential danger to the public during the Bradenton Riverwalk Regatta and fireworks display. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233. The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the Bradenton Riverwalk Regatta. C. Comments and Changes to the Final Rule The Coast Guard received no comments related to this event during the comment period. This rule makes one change to the proposed regulation. In the NPRM, the special local regulation exclusion areas would be enforced from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. However, the Bradenton Riverwalk Regatta includes a fireworks display. To ensure the safety of race participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public on the navigable waters of the United States during the fireworks display, the Coast Guard is extending the enforcement period for the special local regulation until 7:30 p.m. Because the fireworks display will take place in the race area, the geographic area of the proposed enforcement zones remains unchanged in this rule. Additional notice and opportunity to comment on this change is unnecessary because extending the enforcement period a few hours is a logical outgrowth of the the NPRM. The fireworks display has always been part of the schedule of events, publicized by the City of Bradenton and local media. Furthermore, the additional impact of the extended enforcement period is minimal. The enforcement areas will be restricted for three extra hours once per year. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes or executive orders. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory E:\FR\FM\28JAR1.SGM 28JAR1 4498 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 18 / Wednesday, January 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations Planning and Review, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered the impact of this rule on small entities. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. wreier-aviles on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES 4.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule would not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This rule would not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 9. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. 10. Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks 13. Technical Standards This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a determination that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR part 100 as follows: PART 100—SAFETY OF LIFE ON NAVIGABLE WATERS 1. The authority citation for part 100 continues to read as follows: ■ We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. 11.

Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. 6. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. 12.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is establishing this Special Local Regulation on 
the waters of the Gulf of Mexico in the vicinity of Manatee River, 
Florida during the Bradenton Riverwalk Regatta. On November 26, 2014, 
the Coast Guard published a notice proposing this final rule. No 
comments were received.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause 
exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. The Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register because immediate action is needed 
to minimize potential danger to the public during this event and the 
rule will have minimal impact on the public and waterway users. The 
comment period on this rule ended on December 26, 2014 and the Coast 
Guard did not have sufficient time to publish notice of this rule. This 
event has been well publicized by the City of Bradenton and local media 
outlets. Any delay in the effective date of this rule would be contrary 
to the public interest because this rule is needed to minimize 
potential danger to the public during the Bradenton Riverwalk Regatta 
and fireworks display.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard's authority to 
establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233.
    The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of life on 
navigable waters of the United States during the Bradenton Riverwalk 
Regatta.

C. Comments and Changes to the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard received no comments related to this event during 
the comment period. This rule makes one change to the proposed 
regulation. In the NPRM, the special local regulation exclusion areas 
would be enforced from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. However, the Bradenton 
Riverwalk Regatta includes a fireworks display. To ensure the safety of 
race participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general 
public on the navigable waters of the United States during the 
fireworks display, the Coast Guard is extending the enforcement period 
for the special local regulation until 7:30 p.m. Because the fireworks 
display will take place in the race area, the geographic area of the 
proposed enforcement zones remains unchanged in this rule. Additional 
notice and opportunity to comment on this change is unnecessary because 
extending the enforcement period a few hours is a logical outgrowth of 
the the NPRM. The fireworks display has always been part of the 
schedule of events, publicized by the City of Bradenton and local 
media. Furthermore, the additional impact of the extended enforcement 
period is minimal. The enforcement areas will be restricted for three 
extra hours once per year.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on a number of these statutes or executive orders.

1. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) 
of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory

[[Page 4498]]

Planning and Review, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, 
Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require an 
assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of 
Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The 
Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered the impact of this rule on small entities. The Coast Guard 
certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your 
small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have 
questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please 
contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, 
above. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that 
question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the 
Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This rule will not call for a new collection of information under 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

5. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and determined 
that this rule does not have implications for federalism.

6. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. 
Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that 
your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or 
security of people, places or vessels.

7. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule would not result 
in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This rule would not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

9. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

10. Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and would not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

11. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

12. Energy Effects

    This rule is not a ``significant energy action'' under Executive 
Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect 
Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use.

13. Technical Standards

    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

14. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have made a 
determination that this action is one of a category of actions that do 
not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment. This rule is categorically excluded from further review 
under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An 
environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is
